1      1Share There are just some people in life that when you look at them you think, “this person has crossed my path for a reason.” Sarah, @sassyredlipstick, is one of those people for me.  I was introduced to her by someone on Instagram when they told me I HAD to check her out…and I am so glad I did. Sarah is a huge body positive and self-love activist and completely loves herself and her body just how it is.  I love that.  Being someone who is learning to fully love and embrace my body just as it is, it is so refreshing to see others being confident, happy and spreading nothing but love…that is something that I completely admire about her. When I struggle with my own body image and have days that I just don’t feel good enough, I love turning to others who can help lift me up and make me realize that it is ok to have bad days, we all have them.  What matters is how we keep going and keep fighting to love ourselves and to continue to help others do the same.  One of the people I turn to when I’m having an off day is…Sarah. Not only is she someone I admire and look up to for her self-love and body positivity, but the relationship she and her husband Robbie (@Tripp) have is seriously couple goals.  The way he supports her loves her and cherishes her, just the way she is truly one…

              Maybe she’s born with it…maybe it’s this red jumpsuit! I have to say this red jumpsuit is one of my favorite items of clothing I have ever bought. I think the reason is that I never thought I would EVER be able to wear not only a fitted one piece but that it would be bright red! Don’t get me wrong, this is totally me! Colorful, sassy, girly…everything I am… all in one item! But actually being able to wear it on my body…now that is a different story. You see, I never thought someone like me could pull off something like this. Wearing something so fitted, and bright would draw so much attention to me. Only girls with slim bodies and big boobs can pull off jumpsuits like this right? WRONG!! So wrong!!! That is old Jacqueline’s way of thinking. In the words of Taylor Swift…old Jacqueline is dead! So when I saw this jumpsuit and found those negative thoughts coming back into my head…the only thing I could do was grab it off the rack and try it on. No more thinking we have to be a certain body shape or type to wear something. No more thinking bright colors are only for people with “perfect bodies.” (PS, there is NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT BODY) and no more thinking that we have to only wear black, and baggy clothes, and things that do not show off our figures and draw no attention…

5  1   6Shares Extreme weight loss.  Losing weight.  Beginning a new chapter of your life, starting a new journey, deciding to become the best you that you can possibly be.  We all hear others talk about how we can be anything we want to be and do anything we want to do.  We are told to follow our dreams and that anything is possible.  Often times, especially on a weight loss journey, we are told: “just do it.”   Part of having success is having a plan.  How can you be successful if you don’t know how to get there? I know people don’t like talking about the hard stuff or the stuff that may not be so pretty along the path to success or following our dreams.  But I think these hard moments are just as important as the pep talks and the “you can do its.”  The fact of the matter is, that losing weight is so much more than just losing weight.  It can get messy, complicated, scary and lonely.  It can take you down a dark path and make you feel lost and alone.  So what are some of the ugly truths of weight loss that I feel are so important and helped me become who I am today? Excuses…everybody has them and uses them as to why they can’t lose weight Yes, I made a bunch of excuses and justified to others and to myself why I would not and did not want to lose weight. It…
